House of Thaller Recalls Selected Pine Nut Hummus Products Because of Possible Health Risk

June 21, 2017

House of Thaller, a Knoxville Tennessee company, is voluntarily recalling selected 10 ounce packages of Hummus with Pine Nut Topping, because an ingredient supplier notified us that their ingredient has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. These products were distributed nationwide through various grocery retailers from April 18, 2017 to June 13, 2017, and in Canada on April 20, 2017. To date, no illnesses have been reported in relation to this product or recall. To check your product for this recall, refer to the lot code printed on the top of the cup. The lot code will begin with a “USE BY” date followed by the letter “W” and a 7 digit code. This is the information to reference when checking your product against the recall list.
